The beach is just over 300 meters long and is surrounded by a large area of very high palm trees and plants that are typical of Caribbean beaches and other invasive plant life.
The place is beautiful and pleasant but it is highly degraded due to the intensive use made of it by visitors and people selling food and drink and due to the traffic and uncontrolled parking of vehicles. There was also a serious problem caused by the remains of dirt both in the dead plant life as well as rubbish left by visitors.
All the plant life has seeded itself naturally and the entrances to the beach, as well as the interior roads in the area of the palm trees, are lacking in organisation. There was a great lack of equipment and it was poorly distributed for the kind of beach in question.
The frequency of visitors and vehicles was significant. The lack of regulation at the entrances was causing a process of degradation that could become irreversible if it is not dealt with soon.
Specific proposals that are being recommended:
We have proposed carrying out the selection of plant life to be preserved and the cutting back or removal of certain invasive plants to enable local plant life to grow correctly. We propose planting palm trees and Coccoloba uvifera L. in certain areas to occupy the freed spaces.
Wheeled access by private vehicles to the beach and the area of the palm trees has been stopped, only allowing access to authorised ambulances, police and cleaning vehicles. A nearby area has been chosen as a car park.
The entire area has been signposted with panels and indicators showing the way. They all share a homogenous design and fit in with the environment.
Various elements have been chosen that can be installed in the area depending on the services that you wish to offer visitors.
As an example, the following elements have been installed:
